The Place: El Medano is a charming village with a real surfy, laidback atmosphere, great food and most importantly epic sailing. It is an extremely popular windsurfing destination and it’s not hard to see why.  Spanish bars, restaurants and surf shops line the harbour and boardwalk, which is always quietly busy with people making use of the public exercise equipment and tranquil spots for some morning yoga.

Coaching: Coaching runs for 5 days out  6 days at a cost of 500€ per week.

Insurance: Insurance: We recommend VDWS insurance for all of our clinics, they charge an annul premium of 39 Euro and cover you worldwide for windsurfing and other sports and are totally worth it! Click here for more....

level: 

Intro to wave 

LEVEL: Able to sail a freewave board 110lr or smaller, waterstart and not lose a lot of ground downwind.

GOALS: Would like to start sailing in waves, learn to jump, and improve general technique in wave conditions and using wave equipment.

 

Intermediate wave 

LEVEL: Already have some wave experience, able to easily sail out through small waves, starting to ride the waves and can make ground upwind.

GOALS: Would like to experience some bigger waves, improve jumping control, with a view to forward or back loops, and improve onshore wave riding.

 

Advanced wave

LEVEL: Comfortable in logo high waves, already jumping in control and able to bottom turn back to the wave in cross onshore conditions.

GOALS: Start sailing at Cabezo bunker, improving bottom and top turns, ready to try forwards, backloops or push loops.

 

The levels stated are a guide, if you are unsure of your level or which clinic would be suit you, please contact us for a chat.

All clinics will run from Monday to Saturday, with 5 days coaching out of 6.  

conditions: There are 3 sailing spots catering for different abilities from learning to wave sail up to throwing aerials and big loops.  Launching and sailing off the main beach offers a great teaching area and playground for those learning to launch and get comfortable in the waves, the harbour wall provides a step up and some good wave riding and jumping.  During the intro to waves week we will be sailing in the Bay and perhaps at the Wall. 

Finally there is Cabezo beach just around the corner is a little more extreme and even hosts a PWA wave event during the summer months. This is where the advanced wave course will be held, with the option of also sailing at the Harbour Wall at low tide.
 

Travel: Flights are pretty cheap with lots of airlines, you fly to Tenerife South airport from most British airports. Once you arrive, Medano is only 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and costs around 10 – 15 Euros

currency: Euro

Temp: During March the average daytime temperature is around 25 degrees, and the water is a bit cooler after winter, so a wetsuit is definitely recommended, a long summer suit or a shortie (for the more hardy amongst you).  Also the evenings can be a bit chilly so it’s worth packing a hoody and some jeans.

In summer the daytime temperature is around 30 degrees but the wind can still be cool.  Most riders wear at least a summer 2mm shorty, some will sail in just board shorts.  We recommend bringing a wetsuit as we will spend a lot of time on the water and on the beach. Even during summer it's always good to have at least one hoody for the windy nights!

What else the town offers: Cycling, both road and mountain biking is big here so pack your lycra if that’s your thing.  There are also lots of excursions such as trekking mount Teide or the giant water park; Siam Park in Las Americas.

1 week coaching: 500€
